Another Haselhorst kid is on the way! Not for us yet, obviously, but for Eric''s brother and his wife! We will have a new niece or nephew born come December! Due date is December 11, 2004.....Congratulations, you guys! We look forward to adding your little one to the play group....Matthew, Allison and Ethan (our other nephew from Eric''s sister and her husband) are looking forward to his/her arrival!! YEA! This birth will be the perfect end to a chaotic year....hope is always around the corner and God always provides some happiness amidst the worst grief.
We had a nice suprise this evening...our friends from "back home" came to visit. Matthew was very excited to see his best friend and they had a blast! The two boys are growing up so fast but they never seem to lose the close friendship they have, even when living far away from each other.
Today was Justin''s funeral. Matthew does not understand why Jesus had to take Justin to heaven. Allison is too young to understand; she is just happy Mommy is finally home. We feel oddly at peace since Justin''s burial. We know for certain that he is with God. Mommy and Daddy are very thankful that Matthew and Allison are still here to hold.
